companies across a range of industries are evaluated. The aim of the awards is
to identify which companies and brands have delivered the highest level of
customer satisfaction, and whether customers would use those brands again and
recommend them to a friend.

A total of 41 different industry sectors were assessed for
the 2020 Awards, with feedback gathered between October 2019 and January 2020
via an online consumer survey.
